Quiet and refined hotel, very close to St. Mark's Church (frescoes by Fra Angelico). Public areas (breakfast room painted like a greenhouse, computer room, lounge-bar) lovely. Clean rooms, some of classical Florentine style, some other rather 'zen style. Staff friendly and welcoming. This was my fifth stay, never disappointed.

Dear Maria, You are always welcome to come back again! I am glad you went out of the main path discovering the Angelico's frescos, which are just a block away from the hotel. You must be a real art lover and have a deep knowledge about Florence. Thank you!! Francesco More

I was there for 3 days and it was an excellent experience, very well located, clean and the service provided was outstanding. The breakfast was also very good. the room was big, and the view from my room was beautiful.

Excellent Hotel, very close to railway station, easy to locate and then a straight walk to see all the major sites in Florence. Very spacious, immaculate and the staff were very helpful. Excellent breakfast and once again the staff in this area were very courteous and helpful. The other thing we found it was very quiet even though it was... More

My wife and I have had the very good fortune to visit Firenze on a number of occasions; this, however, was the first stay at the Orto de Medici Hotel. I only wish that we would have discovered it long ago. Not only is the hotel itself very lovely, it is in a wonderful part of the city, right around... More

This was my second stay at the Orto De Medici and my already high expectations were exceeded. The hotel is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station, as well as most major sites in Florence. I've found that the rooms here are very spacious (including the bathroom), and most have been recently remodeled. Overall the... More

On our New Year Italy trip we had four days in Florence, and stayed in this hotel. In contrast to our previous hotel, it was very warm in the room, it was pleasant to walk barefoot and sleep without clothes. The room was spacious and modern-looking, with big bed, big TV and mirror wardrobe, in the bathroom there was a... More

What a wonderful stay! We were lucky to be upgraded to a family room (thank you!) which was huge with a big bath room and a bath tub! The room was spotlessly clean and so comfortable. Excellent bed. The hotel is very well located. We were able to walk from the train station with suit cases. It's a quick walk... More

This hotel contributed very much to a very pleasant stay at Florence- definitely one of Europe`s most beautiful cities. It is located in a quiet part of the city within walking distance to the big landmarks of Florence like the cathedral (duomo), the church San Marco, San Lorenzo, the station and close by you can find decent restaurants, cafes and...

Well, we did not love this hotel. First of all, our door had obviously been attempted to be broken into (prior to our arrival). There were numerous markings on the wood of the door near the lock, and the door knob was kind of hanging on a funny angle. The room itself was clean, and decent, and there was free... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The front desk staff were all friendly and it was one of my better hotel stays while in Italy. The hotel is in an excellent location. It's within walking distance of the sant Maria train station, the central market, the uffizi, and the duomo. I believe we got a newly renovated room... More
